RankIQ is a keyword research that is ideal for beginner bloggers. It lets you know what keywords in your niche would be easiest to rank for and how fast you’re likely to rank.


Convertkit is an email marketing service. It’s designed for bloggers. I’ve been using it since 2015. Similar to other email marketing services they offer a free plan for those with fewer than 1,000 subscribers.


I have hosted several sites on SiteGround, it’s super easy to get started with and setting up WordPress. So far they have been very responsive and helpful whenever I’ve needed something. 


While WordPress is great, it’s lacking when it comes to creating landing pages and sales pages. Which is where Elementor a robust page builder that makes creating great look pages easy(this page was built with elementor).


Missinglettr is one of my favorite tools, it automates creating social media posts for new content. You just put in your URL and then it generates different posts to be published over a set period (I usually do 12 months) You can get 50% off your first 3 months using the link below (they also have a free plan)


Canva makes creating blog graphics super fast an easy. To really save time upgrade to CanvaPro to get access to the “styles” feature with lets you brand any template with the click of a button.


AppSumo is my go-to website for lifetime deals. Some of the best deals that show up repeatedly are DepositPhotos (stock photos) and ShortPixel (Image Compression).



Rytr is an AI writing tool that speeds up content creation. I use it to create a super rough draft of a blog post in minutes.

Right now it’s available on Appsumo for just $39.


SEMRUSH is a great tool for more established bloggers. It can help with keyword research, content optimization, and backlink building. But if you’re new to blogging it will likely be overwhelming in which case I recommend RankIQ.
